Time heals all wounds…unless it doesn’t.
In 1965, a young woman in love and a veil was kidnapped and found murdered in the small Missouri town of St. Sebastian, a ghost-ridden hamlet of dubious reputation. A priest took the fall, literally. But the FBI has now discovered a clue among the bodies found in a mass grave in Kansas and it’s time to take another look at a crime nobody wanted to investigate in the first place.
A couple of junior FBI agents are sure they’re onto something, but their bosses aren’t interested in investigating Sister Maggie’s death. Neither is Mercy Watts. She just wants a vacation, not another problem, certainly not the cold case from hell. Greece is calling. A beach and drinks with little umbrellas are just what Mercy needs, but her family needs something else. Her beloved godmothers were close friends with Sister Maggie and they’ve asked for answers to the questions that have haunted them for over fifty years. Unfortunately, Mercy’s Great Aunt Miriam wants to forget everything from that time and demands that her niece forget it, too. Mercy has always known that you do for family, but which family is now the question.
Can Mercy bring to light the secrets so long buried without hurting those she loves? Will the ghosts of St. Sebastian be on her side? There’s a lot to hide in the Missouri countryside and survival isn’t guaranteed.
